Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR SELECTING PACKS BEING MOVED AT A HIGH SPEED
Abstract:
According to claim 1, the invention relates to a device (1) for sorting packs (2, 4), in particular beverage containers. The device according to the invention preferably comprises at least one conveyor belt (6) for transporting a plurality of pack units (2, 4), an identification device (8) for identifying a decoration on each pack unit (2, 4) being conveyed on the conveyor belt, wherein selection data can be generated by the identification device (8) depending on the respective decoration provided on a specifically detected pack (4), and a selection device (10) for repositioning individual pack units (4) on the conveyor belt (6) depending on the respective identified decoration, said selection device (10) forming a continuous web (12) and having disengagement means (14) for moving the identified pack units (4). The endless web (12) extends along the conveyor belt (6) in a selection region (16), and the individual disengagement means (14) can be accelerated up to the same speed as the conveyor belt (6) in the selection region (16) by means of a transport device and in the process is adjacent to a specific previously identified pack unit (4). The transport unit is actuated depending on the selection data, and the respective disengagement means (14) for moving the adjacent pack unit (4) can be disengaged in a direction (N) at an angle to the transport direction (T) of the conveyor belt (6).
